This unique book provides the student of Roman history with an
accessible and detailed introduction to Roman and provincial
coinage in the late Republic and early Empire in the context of
current historical themes and debates. Almost two hundred different
coins are illustrated at double life size, with each described in
detail, and technical Latin and numismatic terms are explained.
Chapters are arranged chronologically, allowing students to quickly
identify material relevant to Julius Caesar, the second
triumvirate, the relationship between Antony and Cleopatra, and the
Principate of Augustus. Iconography, archaeological contexts, and
the economy are clearly presented. A diverse array of material is
brought together in a single volume to challenge and enhance our
understanding of the transition from Republic to Empire.
